    2001 E39 M5 for sale - £8250

    Very nice indeed. Location? Doesn't show on mobile as far as I can see.

    Car is no longer for sale

    This looks a nice example. I wish I was in a sensible position to be buying but I really need to shift 2-3 cars! My favourite colour combo too. I know it's personal preference but I really dislike the two-tone seats you often get. GLWS.

    E39 Touring 530i - Manual

    Hi guys, Looking for a manual e39 touring 530i - ideally with a high spec but I'd consider anything. Won't be my daily runner, just have an itch to try the e39. Open to hear about alternatives (e.g. V8) that don't quite match tick list. Based in East Midlands. Rhys

    Wheel Offset Data (ET)

    Think it's the opposite if I've understood it correctly, lower offset is more 'aggressive' and sticks out more. Too high an offset will be too far in and catch on your brakes/suspension.

    Wheel Offset Data (ET)

    As above. The below website is really good for this sort of thing: http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/

    1999 E39 540iA Touring - Cosmos Black - Stunning

    Nice one chap, I loved my e60. Still miss it now. Partly why I fancy trying an e39. Ideally a cheap but well looked after straight 6.

    1999 E39 540iA Touring - Cosmos Black - Stunning

    Yeah, I thought it looked a bit more worn out and didn't like the sound of the engine cutting out. Shame! Hope someone gets it and looks after it.

    E60 520D - 2008

    Now £3,195 elsewhere. Would take £3k from a forum member and would chuck in both sets of wheels and a full space saver kit. Rear number plate bulbs fitted, a doddle!

    E60 520D - 2008

    Hi guys, First off, I apologise for putting my ad in this section but I have tried to pay for Gold membership via card & PayPal but for some reason it kept coming up with an error - sorry! I've found myself in a pickle and have two cars, so I'm looking to offload my e60. Still a lovely car and needs to be kept on the road. I've advertised elsewhere and keep getting relatively good offers by people intending to use it for parts only which would be a shame. The ad stuff below (please note the car now has Style 50 winters on): 2008 (08), Saloon, 209,000 miles, Manual, 2.0L, Diesel Good: Lovely comfortable drive - the perfect motorway cruiser! BMW service history + well maintained (extra oil services every 10k miles). Recently had rear brake discs (+ inboard shoes) + pads done. LCI Facelift model. 3 owners (family owned since 2009 - father owned it before me). 4x Goodyear Eagle NCT5 Run Flats (rears ~ 7.0mm, fronts ~4.5mm).Still in daily use (so mileage will go up) & everything works. Completely standard and not messed about with. Largely motorway miles. Great road presence. I haven't had any issues (except for light bulbs) outside of routine servicing in my 3.5 years ownership and running costs have been surprisingly cheap to date! Not so good: Small dent (20p piece in size) on boot from where a petrol nozzle fell on it. Scratch on rear passenger-side door - unknown origin as this was present when my father bought the car in 2009. Small mark behind rear passenger wheel arch where I slowly reversed into a pillar (not that noticeable!). I find headlight bulbs seem to only last approx 18 months (and are a bit fiddly to replace). Needs a rear number plate light fitted, though I'm sure I can do this myself before sale if a problem. Please have a good look through the photos (the white marks are pollen!), this car is in excellent condition for the age/mileage with a couple of cosmetic marks. Can be sold with winter or stock wheels (or both) and have some roof bars sitting around too if interested. Up for sale elsewhere at £3,695. Will accept £3,500 from forum member & I'll throw in the spare wheels, a full spacesaver kit and roof bars. R
  13. Just a thought - would you be able to do a small tv unit?

    Bmw style 400 f30 wheels and reducing spacers

    Arrived this morning and look fantastic. Thanks again Dreddy

    Is this normal (everlasting brakes)?

    Er, it's a manual and it has been used predominantly for motorway commuting. We're both adamant that Sytners haven't touched pads or discs - unless they did so without telling & charging us. I'll take a look at them tomorrow when it's not dark.
